Kurt Sutter Apologizes for Spoiling 'Sons of Anarchy' Series Finale
After the bloody, deadly penultimate episode of Sons of Anarchy this past Tuesday, fans are anxiously awaiting the final episode on Dec. 9.
But it looks like some fans may already know what happens to Jax (Charlie Hunnam) and the remaining members of his SAMCRO club. A new book, Sons of Anarchy: The Official Collector's Edition, was sent out a few days early, resulting in readers discovering details about the final episode.
The book is scheduled to hit shelves on Dec. 10.
Creator Kurt Sutter released a lengthy apology Friday for the book's early release. "This, my friends, is a storyteller's worst nightmare," he said.
While Sutter said there were "a thousand f—ing people" he could blame, he chose to take the heat himself. "It was my idea for the book, so ultimately, I am to blame," he wrote. He asked fans who have received the book to avoid spoiling the end for others.
Below, read Sutter's complete note [Warning: Strong language]:
It has been brought to my attention that our SOA Collector's Edition book has been sent out a week early by some distributors and book outlets. This book contains details about the final episode of the series. This, my friends, is a storyteller's worst nightmare. I wanted this book to be a complement to the show. It contains personal messages and photos from the cast, in-depth behind-the-scenes information and detailed breakdowns of episodes. It's a smart, well-conceived book that I was very excited for the fans to have. After the motherf—ing finale. There are a thousand f—ing people I can blame. And I assure you, by the time I am done, my f—ing basket will be filled with heads of incompetent c—s. But as far as the fans go, the burden is on me. I f—ed up. It was my idea for the book, so ultimately, I am to blame. So if you received a book, I apologize. I ask that you not share your wrath or pain or opinion in social media so as to not spoil the experience of others. There is no excuse for utter ineptitude. It pains me that this will be the parting memory of some fans. I hope you all tune in for the finale. It plays much better than it reads.
The seventh and final season of Sons of Anarchy wraps up on Tuesday, Dec. 9, at 10 p.m. on FX.
